OTHER: Oregon Grape Holly is an evergreen shrub native to the western US & Canada. It is the state flower of Oregon. They are very ornamental & provide a huge benefit to wildlife. The plants are drought resistant, deer & rabbit resistant, & will tolerate poor or rocky soil. The flowers bloom in large clusters in early spring before many other plants have even woken up. The fragrant bell-shaped flowers will attract bees, birds, & butterflies. The evergreen holly shaped leaves are green in the summer, & take on lovely bronze to red highlights in the fall. Hip florists everywhere are falling in love with these for cut arrangements! In fall, the Oregon Grape has showy purplish-red berries that look like but are not really a grape. The berries are edible but tart, & are often made into jelly, juice, or wine. They are also used to make a purple dye. Song birds, game birds, & other woodland creatures like squirrels will love to eat the berries!
